31C3 Aftermath

Finally, I have a little time to write about the congress. As the last couple of years, I attended the 31st Chaos Communication Congress between Christmas and New Year.

Here’s my talk selection in random order (I definitely forgot some as I haven’t watched all):

The Machine to be Another great research and talk. Mesmerizing, I’m thinking about how to use this effect for my work ;)

From Computation to Consciousness. Nice “Philosopy” talk by Joscha.

Rocket Science David Madlener gives a nice, entertaining intro in why it’s important to go to space and how to build rockets.

Why are computers so @#!*, and what can we do about it?.

Traue keinem Scan, den du nicht selbst gefälscht hast In German, yet I think there’s a translation. Extremely funny, hope the translation captures it.

Don’t watch the keynote. I wonder who picked the speaker … terrible.

This year, I spent a substantial amount with at the Food Hacking Base. Interesting talks. I’m thinking more and more to do some research in this direction. Especially after I listened to the new Resonator Podcast about the connection between our gut and our brain (recording is unfortunately in German).
